Are you excited to have two incredible projects at the same time? Tell us more about both Norman and Asuncion.
Asuncion is Oscar-Nominee Jesse Eisenberg’s writing debut currently running Off-Broadway at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre. I play the title role of “Asuncion” opposite Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network, Zombieland, Squid and the Whale), and Justin Bartha (National Treasure 1&2, Hangover 1&2). We’ve been getting great reception from audiences and the show has just been announced to extend through late December, so we are very excited. This is my New York theatre debut, so I am thrilled to be making it under such auspicious circumstances, as well as getting to enjoy The Big Apple herself! I am homesick, but happy to be here.
Norman is an amazing indie film with an original soundtrack by none other than Andrew Bird. It stars Dan Byrd (Easy A, Cougar Town), Emily VanCamp (Brothers and Sisters, Revenge) and two of my favorites– Adam Goldberg and another Oscar-Nominee Richard Jenkins. I play “Helen Black,” an offbeat, neurotic drama geek with a penchant for awkward performance art and for Norman, the title character. It’s a lovely film and I am so happy to be associated with it.

How do you describe your personal style?
I’d say it lies somewhere in the land where girly meets offbeat.
Do you prefer trend over what you personally like best or do you do what suits you regardless of what is in style?
I tend to incorporate trends that fit within what suits me. My closet is mostly comprised of “cool” colors – I love blues, mauves, and black. And I wear skirts or dresses at least five days out of a week. I am a short little lady, so I tend to avoid longer skirts in favor of mini’s and above-the-knee cuts.
Who is your fashion icon favorite and why?
Alexa Chung is a great balance of feminine and edgy. And Zooey Deschanel is pretty loveable in her vintage meets girly wear. I am a huge music enthusiast, so women who toe the line between the music world and their personal style are right up my alley.
My best friend Alexys Oliver probably has the best style of any woman I have known and has a blog (fashionbater.blogspot.com). She probably influences my style and inspires me more than anyone!
Who are your favorite designers and why?
Marc Jacobs- love how he has influenced fashion over the years and how he is very influenced by music!
Chloe- takes what I love about vintage fashion and makes it current
Jason Wu- beautiful form to the female body. great mix of whimsy and chic
Pheobe Philo- pretty, feminine
Casual daily fun favorites:
My Pet Square
What are some of your staple fashion items in your closet and why?
I wear my favorites over and over. I have a wide array of ankle-high booties. My favorites are a pair of brown leather vintage granny boots I scored on eBay. And I have three pairs of Seychelles in various colors, as well as a new navy blue pair by Marc Jacobs. They work with skinny jeans, bare-legged with skirts, or with tights and dresses – which pretty much comprises my entire wardrobe!
In the summer, I wear an array of tiny floral feminine dresses paired with a booties or sandals, and in the winter, a pretty girly cut coat and knee-high boots are my general uniform. And generally layered necklaces to accent.
